Taumarunui Women's Refuge & Support Centre

Social Service


12:00 AM to 12:00 AM.


We are a non-profit organisation for women and their children, here to help prevent and stop family violence. We serve Taumarunui, National Park, Ohakune, Raetihi, Waiouru and Taihape. 

Our services are confidential and we support women whether they choose to leave or stay in a relationship. If you are experiencing any form of abuse in your family or your relationship, or know someone who is, there are many ways we can help you.

We don’t lead or follow you, we walk beside you to help you with YOUR plans and goals.
